Did Your Employer Act Unlawfully?
Like many other states, Michigan is an at-will employment state. While this does mean that your employer may fire you without cause, they cannot do so for reasons that state or federal laws deem illegal.
It is unlawful for them to fire or lay you off for any of the following reasons:
- Your age, race, national origin, gender or religion
- Any disability that you may have
- Needing time off work to perform jury duty
- Taking military or family/medical leave
- Who you voted for in a political election
- Retaliation against you for filing a complaint
If found in breach of an employment agreement or labor laws, your employer is subject to penalties and may be responsible for paying you damages.
